What do you think about American remakes in general?
The Office = worked
Life on mars = nope
Queer as folk = worked
MTV are launching an exact replica of the popular UK show SKINS, Check out this clip that illustrates the difference between the shows. Not a lot, a complete remake, almost word for word. I'm usually outraged at remakes like this, but to be honest, I watched the original SKINS on 'Netflix' with an American friend and they needed subtitles. And at times, so did I!
